The below pearls of wisdom are from a guru,
a teacher and the sage Ramana Maharishi:
“Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world.
The Sun is simply bright.
It does not correct anyone.
Because it shines, the whole world is full of light.
Transforming oneself is a means of
giving light to the whole world.”
“Let come what comes, let go what goes.
See what remains.”
“Real happiness abides in Self knowledge.
All else is fleeting.
To know oneself is to be blissful always.”
“Happiness is your nature, it is not wrong to desire it.
What is wrong is to seek it outside,
when it is inside.”
“Self reform automatically brings about social reform.”
“The inner Self, as the primeval Spirit, Eternal, ever effulgent,
full and infinite Bliss, single, indivisible, whole and living,
Shines in everyone as the witnessing awareness.
That Self in its’s splendour, shining in the cavity of the heart.
This Self is neither born nor dies, neither grows nor decays,
Nor does it suffer any change.
When a pot is broken, the space within it is not. Similarly,
when the body dies, the Self in it remains eternal.”
“Silence is also a conversation.”
“All misery is only unwanted thought, The mind is not
strong enough to resist.”
“Our own self realization is the greatest service
we can render the world.”
“You have no need to travel anywhere. Journey within yourself
Enter a mine of rubies, and bathe in the splendor
of your own light.”
“The meaning of our self is not to be found in it’s seperateness
from God and others, but in the ceaseless realization
of yoga, of union.
“Understanding without practice is better than practice without understanding.
Understanding with practice is better than understanding without practice.
Residing in your true nature is better than understanding or practice.”
“The success in yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures,
but how it positively changes the way we live
our life and our relationships.”
“How do i listen to others? As if everyone were my Master
speaking to me his cherished last words.”
“I wanted to change the world. But I have found that the only
thing one can be sure of changing is oneself.”
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself.”
